The Miami Dolphins addressed their ground attack in a big way on Tuesday.

Raheem Mostert's agent said his client agreed to a two-year contract, while ESPN reported Jeff Wilson is signing a two-year deal that has a maximum value of $8.2 million.

Financial terms were not disclosed by Mostert's agent Brett Tessler, but ESPN reported the deal is worth up to $7.6 million with incentives.

Mostert, 30, posted career-high totals in carries (181) and rushing yards (891) to go along with three touchdowns in 16 games last season with the Dolphins. He also had personal bests in catches (31) and receiving yards (202) in addition to finding the end zone on two occasions in the passing game.

Mostert followed head coach Mike McDaniel to Miami after spending five-plus seasons as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

Mostert has totaled 465 carries for 2,501 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground in 65 games for the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, 49ers and Dolphins.

Wilson, 26, rushed for 392 yards and three touchdowns in eight games (one start) after being acquired by the Dolphins from the 49ers on Nov. 1. He totaled 860 yards and five scores in 16 games (seven starts) between the two teams in 2022.

Wilson has totaled 2,125 rushing yards with 18 touchdowns in 53 career games (16 starts).
